    Botticelli II

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi everyone,

    I m from Canada, and we have this ECM espresso machine available to us. I noticed it is also available in Australia. When doing searchs on american sites, I never can find anyone who sells it , reviews or comments. The only review ive seen is from www.coffeecrew.com here in Canada.
    Since its available in Austrailia, I assume some of you guys own them. Could I get some feed back from any owners along with info. on any other websites which may have reviews, or detailed descriptions, exploded views, parts etc....
    I appreciate this, thanks

    P.S. ive already done a search of previous posts (and read) on this web site.

    You might check the coffeegeek site. There are a couple of Botticelli II reviews and a new poster from Oz that has one and seems to love it. Ive also come across a blog from someone in europe that has one and has internal photos online.

    Sounds like a excellent single boiler machine, except for the fixed steam arm.

    Cheers,

    Mark.

    Yes- theyre a great machine if thats the type of thing you want to get. Theres plenty of weight in the group and portafilter (58mm).

    Think of them as a more temperature stable, better built sylvia and youd be pretty much on the money. I guess the problem is that pricing is close on that of entry level HX machines....

    Hope that helps..
